The 1909 supplement to the 1906 American Type Founders' specimen book. It was digitized by Google Books from the University of Michigan copy. This version was assembled from page images from The Hathi Trust. Note that there may be some confusion in the Hathi Trust catalog between the Supplement (of 1909) and the Supplement No. 2 (of 1911). This is the 1909 Supplement, identified as such on its title page and bearing the Hathi Trust identification code mdp.39015033591697.
